After his defeat in 1996 TamilNadu Assembly election, KA Sengottaiyan the Ex - Transport Minister was facing may problems due to corruption charges filed against him. Even once he was sentenced to four years Rigorous Imprisonment (RI) and a fine of Rs 1.05 lakh.
But after 2001 Election results, the charges against him was becoming weak. And in Feb 18 this year, the court acquitted him in all charges.
He was also visible in many AIADMK ceremonies in the past 2 years. And now he is one of the member in the Team formed by J Jayalalitha to talk to ADMK allies regarding seat sharing.
K A Sengottaiyan contested from Gobichettipalayam Assembly Constituency in 1991 and was selected as a MLA, and once in 1996 he lost. Due to the charges, he couldn't contest in 2001 Assembly election as well.
I believe, Mr. Sengottaiyan will contest in Gobichettipalayam Constituency this 2006 Assembly election.
Update : As expected Mr. KA Sengottaiyan, Ex - Transport Minister is going to contest in the Tamil Nadu Assembly Election 2006 from Gobi Assembly Constituency, which is also his native. His name was listed in the AIADMK candidate list.
